The Elliot Lake resident who got the ball rolling to have an animal gas chamber taken down is happy with the results. The bunker came down March 31st and John Sewell was one of several activists to take a swing at it with a sledge hammer. Sewell visited the bunker once and found an open can of cat food inside. He believes the food was how some animals may have been lured into the bunker. Sewell began his drive to demolish the gas chamber four years ago. The council of the day agreed not to use it anymore for domestic pets but would still use it for wild animals. Sewell didn’t like that and continued lobbying for its demolition. Mayoral challenger Dan Marchisella agreed last fall that if he became mayor, the chamber was gone. Sewell says Marchisella was good on his word.
